Any news about the support acts 2018?

In 2017 I think "The Struts" in Zürich were great.

Greta VF would be great !
Given their schedule, the only possibilities would be Stuttgart and Marseille

I saw the Specials when they were known as The Coventry Specials circa '77 they were supporting the Clash, I think, at Bristol Locarno.

Boom Child are a three-piece rock-act from Dublin, apparently. Nope, hadn't heard of them, either.

Not originally from Manchester, but they rose to fame as part of the Manchester scene back in the early '90's - the Charlatans.
They have raved about the Stones in the past, and are a great band live - maybe a candidate for opening in Manchester?
And I vaguely recall they opened for the Stones during either the Licks tour or A Bigger Bang?

I believe they were one of the support acts at the Slane Castle show in 2007.

Would be perfect, a bit of ska, before the stones come on. It will be a cracking atmosphere.

As well as opening for the Stones with the Charlatans, didn't Tim Burgess perform solo as an opener, also?

Enough of the obscure green bands. Add some veteran rockers. George Thorogood, Santana, Steve Miller, Donovan, Lee Michaels, Jethro Tull, Blue Oyster Cult etc...

Most of what's left of the veteran bands won't be around in 5 or 10 years. Time for the Stones to give them a little bump, and the fans.

Bring your own straw. Use the picture of the Stones, the one of the band with Bill Wyman holding a finger to his nose as a tour poster.

Saw them opening for The Who in Quebec. Great sound, great stage presence, great energy. Nice band with some great songs.
I'd like to see them again.

Hmmm...I don't know about that. They kind of sucked back in 1989 as openers at the L.A. Coliseum if you ask me, and I liked there first album at the time.
Not sure if 30 years later there would be any improvement.

Common guys... Guns and Roses are selling so many tickets there is absolutely no reason at all for them to be a warm up band. Also they will costs almost the same as the Stones.
